Soviet Society And Culture: Essays In Honor Of Vera S. Dunham
Soviet Society And Culture: Essays In Honor Of Vera S. Dunham
Edited by Terry L. Thompson and Richard Sheldon
Westview Press, 1988, 290 pp

Authors and editors have succeeded in fashioning a collection of brief, pithy and not wholly unrelated essays that touch on salient aspects of Soviet society from Stalin's time to the present. They make a real effort to put their specialized presentations in the context of broad social and cultural trends. Alexander Dallin, Seweryn Bialer, James Millar and Peter Juviler are among the contributors.
